What do you have to do to play the Weekend League?

Not everyone knows, but the Daily Knockouts are not the only way to qualify for the Weekend League.
You can do it through one of three ways:



Let’s analyse in more detail what have to be done to get the qualification for the FIFA 18 Weekend League.

Daily Knockouts

In FIFA 18 there are no featured tournaments, how it happened in previous titles. They were replaced by the Daily Knockouts. If you want to qualify, you will need to win four consecutive games in one of these tournaments of the previous week.

These tournaments usually expire in 48 hours and have different rewards and requirements. You are allowed to try your luck a determined number of times, usually 8. After you win one, you will not be able to play it again. If you won the first daily knockout of the week, you are already qualified but you are free to play the second one.

Online FUT Seasons

If you are on the first online division of FUT Seasons, you are in the good way to be qualified for the weekend league. All you need to do is to play at least one season in the previous week and not be relegated.

In other words, you will be qualified through the online FUT seasons if:

✔️ You were promoted from division 2 to division 1 (don’t have to win the title);
✔️ You hold on the division 1;
✔️ You won the division 1 title.

If you meet any of these requirements, you are qualified. It doesn’t matter if, for example, you were relegated to the second division if before that you already won the division 1 title. Don’t forget that you only get the qualification through the FUT Seasons, if you played at least one full season in the previous week.

Weekend League

If you are a regular FUT Champions player, you probably don’t have to play FUT Seasons or Daily knockouts to get qualified for the FIFA 18 Weekend League. All you have to do is to rank gold on the previous round. This is valid for any of the platforms: PC, Playstation 4 or XBox One.

In other words, you will be automatically qualified if in the previous Weekend League you reached any of these tiers:

✔️ Gold 3
✔️ Gold 2
✔️ Gold 1
✔️ Elite 3
✔️ Elite 2
✔️ Elite 1


Remember that you can only qualify once for each weekend. Meeting the entry requirements more than once on the same week, will not give you the chance to play more matches on the weekend or any extra qualification to be used on future rounds.

You should also keep in mind that you will only receive your qualifications on Thursdays. No matter if you ranked gold, won a tournament or hold on division 1, you will never receive your qualification before that.

If for some reason you were not able to claim your qualification, don’t worry. It will be waiting for you, as soon as you open your console on the weekend for which you got the qualification. In other hand, if you meet one of the conditions after EA release the qualifications, you will be able to play the weekend league since that it happened before the weekend league round starts. All qualifications that happen while weekend league is running, will be valid for the next round.

    What can i do in my squad

  4. I got gold in cut champions but it shows that I didn’t qualify for next weekend do they show when I get rewards or is it a glitch

  5. Do I have to play full season (from first match) between monday – thursday (usual qulification days)? If I be promoted from DIV2 and played matches e.g. for the last 2 weeks, will I be quelified to WL?
    Promotion to DIV2 will get you qualification only for next WL or any future WL?
    Will I be qualified to WL each week if I hold one season in DIV1?

    • Hi.
      1) You only need to win four matches in a row. It can be anytime, even in last day.
      2) You need to play a full season on division 1 and not get relegated, or play a full season on division 2 and get promoted to be qualified for WL. These full seasons has to be played in the previous week.
      3) Promotion from division 2 will only give you qualification for that weekend.
      4) No. You need to play a full season every week and not be relegated to get qualified for all weekends.

  6. What league level should you be to try futchamps??? I’m a solid league 2-3 player but keep getting drawn against fut founders and monster teams in my qualifications! Can’t get in

  7. In previous FIFA season (17) you only got to not relegate from division 2 to get qualified. Did they change the rule this season?
